Dividing Up Lewin's Morgengruss?
Some musicology students at Princeton are getting together over the summer to read David Lewin's Morgengruss. As the essay is not divided into chapters, I'm looking for advice on how to chop up the text into sensible bits. We will be reading the text over five weeks or so (with the sixth week likely dedicated to some of the essays in the back of the text). So if you had to divide the book into five units, how would you do so?
As of now, I think reading up to page 21 (the Preface and Lewin's discussion of the poetic text) coupled with our own reactions to the Lied would make a good week 1. But past that, I'm open to ideas!
Thanks so much!
